Recognizing Hazrat Mahdi (as) When He Appears

The Turkish Nation and the Years 700-1400

The year 700, and multiples thereof, have always represented the beginning of highly significant events for the Turkish people. For instance;

The emergence of Oguz Khan: 1400 years before the Hijrat  
Turkish invasion of China: 1400 years before the Hijrat     
The Seljuk Turks' conversion to Islam: 350 years before the Hijrat  
The Dominion of the Seljuk Empire: 350 years before the Hijrat  
The foundation of the Ottoman Empire: 700 years before the Hijrat   

  A verse in the indicated meaning:

We have given you the Seven Oft-repeated* and the Magnificent Qur'an. (Surat al-Hijr, 87)
 

According to such worthy scholars as Bediuzzaman and Suyuti, the Mahdi, regarded as the first great portent of the Doomsday, will appear in the year 1400 (Hegira style) (1979-1980), meaning that the first step towards the dominion of the Islamic morality under the leadership of the Mahdi will be taken in those years.

The coming of the Mahdi in 1400, his first army being made up of Turks, his sending that army to the Turks and the spiritual conquer of (*) Constantinople (present-day Istanbul) all acquire a separate significance in the light of the matter described above.

(*) (See, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir al-zaman, pp. 42, 50, 72)
